Only a select number of facilities achieve this high rating from the Centers for Medicare-Medicaid Services (CMS), the government agency overseeing the rating system.
The rating is derived from several factors:
• Health inspections, for the 3 most recent years

Cedar Manor is proud to announce that Advantage Surgical & Wound Care is now part of our team. Advantage provides superior, professional surgical wound care within the nursing home. Residents can now avoid frequent, lengthy and often costly transportation to wound clinic appointments. In addition, their day is not disrupted. They will not miss meals, recreational activities or scheduled therapy sessions. Another highlight is that communication of care between doctor and nursing staff is direct and personal rather than by note alone.
Cedar Manor's Rehabilitation Department has contracted with "Language Fundamentals" to provide speech, language and swallowing evaluations to its residents requiring services. Included in their services is the ability to implement VitalStim Therapy which is an FDA approved method to promote swallowing through the application of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) to the swallowing muscles in conjunction with conventional swallowing exercises. The goal of this treatment modality is to strengthen and reeducate the muscular system and improve motor control of the patient's swallowing mechanism.
The modality can be utilized to treat patients with dysphagia due to a variety of etiologies including:
Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
Head & Neck Cancers (in absence of active neoplasm)
Candidates for treatment will be assessed for tolerance, assessing such factors as frequency, duration, and progress of this specialized modality. Patients placed on program will be done in collaboration with the patient's attending physician.
